John Tesh – Gospel Artist

The eclectic career of John Tesh has taken him from prime-time telelvision to inspiring others with his gospel music.

His career path began as a youngster when he was taught piano by teachers from the Julliard school. In high school he earned a place with the New York State Symphonic Orchestra and after college he and Oprah Winfrey covered the same stories while they each were reporters for competing Nashville, Tennessee television stations.

In the following decade after just two years as co-host of Entertainment Tonight, the popular television/magazine show, he toured with Yanni playing keyboards for him. Toward the end of his 10 year stint at Entertainment Tonight he performed at the infamous 250 million year old concert venue “Red Rocks Amphitheatre” outside Denver, Colorado. The filming of that concert went on to become one of the most successful fundraisers for Public Television. It also became the catalyst for transitioning his career back to his musical roots.

John is now an advocate for the power and encouragement found in worship music. Through his gospel music he is now attracting a younger audience while simultaneously attracting a more mature audience through his nationwide radio show “Intelligence For Your Life” where he covers topics on health and well being.

John Tesh has been quoted as saying that he desires only to be useful to others. That passion and energy is materialized here in this upbeat song “Shackles” from his piano gospel dance DVD called “Alive: Music & Dance”. It combines his music, big gospel choirs and hip-hop dance (and appeals to all ages)!

    If this brings young people to Christ, that is what is important. It shows they are happy and maybe the message they sing will bring them even closer to God. Please keep the young people inspired and this will bring us all closer together.
